Title:SNCC 1960-1966 : Six years of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee

Web site with information about the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) from its beginnings in the Greensboro-inspired sit-ins in February 1960 to its official organization in April 1960 at Raleigh, North Carolina's Shaw University through 1966 when Stokely Carmichael took over leadership from John Lewis.
